Space Angels Network Expands to Asia-Pacific via Sydney Hub

Australia Hub

London, UK – 07 July 2014 – Space Angels Network, a global network of early-stage investors focused specifically on commercial space, aerospace, and aviation ventures, is proud to announce its expansion to the Asia-Pacific region via a new Hub in Sydney, Australia. Hubs are physical or virtual offices either led by members of the Space Angels Network management team or represented by honorary investor members, and enable greater access to innovative new ventures and facilitate interaction between like-minded investors across the globe. These regional Hubs provide a platform for organizing Space Angels Network members through events, investor presentations, and member meetups. Tim Parsons, Space Angels Network member and Founding Executive of delta-v SpaceHub, will act as the primary point of contact for the new Sydney Hub, representing Space Angels Network in the region.

“We are extremely excited to announce our presence in Australia, which not only provides a new source of quality deal flow for our members, but also enables investors in the region to connect with peers in the global space community”, said Chad Anderson, Managing Director of Space Angels Network. “Historically, the angel investing process has been local, making it difficult for new space ventures to attract investors. Geographically-focused angel groups don’t see enough space companies nor do they have a critical mass of members capable of evaluating the ones they do see. At Space Angels Network we leverage our global network, online platform, and industry focus to bring aerospace entrepreneurs and investors together.”
